Did another late afternoon ride, left at 3pm it was 70 out. Nice ride, got some more sun and color in my face. Got gas again since there was 136.4 miles on the trip meter, came out to 46.2 mpg when i got home which makes sense I've been riding slightly more conservative overall, still getting on it occasionally. Got home about 5:30 pm with around 60 miles ridden.

A few snapshot from the ride:

Changed the rectifier for the Shindengen SH775 to fix the "stator growl", after adding LED headlights and turn lights. Plugged in my newly Ivan flashed ECU. Soooo, much better. Rebuilt clutch master cylinder and installed new Speigler clutch line.

I wish it was warm enough to joy ride!

Changed the headlight bulb on the Zero. 1/4 in socket and a small Allen wrench I'm lucky I don't have many tools. I got my pictures back!

Got those same grips and throttle lock. LOVE them both! Ivans flash is awesome.
I finally got to take my girl out for a ride (just 5 miles to work, but it counts) with the new upgrades (Ivans Flash, grips, cruise). I gotta say, that Flash REALLY impresses me. I still have a lot of decel popping, but am hoping that I just need a longer ride for the ECU to properly read all the sensors and work out a proper "tune" for me. I do have Church's VBAK, AIS Delete, and Gen II Speedstar Exhaust so I might have to get a proper tune on my PC III (currently removed from the circuits, but still on the bike).

Anyways, as I was accelerating away from a stop light, I realized I don't have a "bike" anymore. She's much more of a 😈 DEMON!! 😈 Screaming out of he11!! Ready to rip the heads off anyone that crosses her!!

Soooo...... that's fun!! Oh! And the grips are nice too!

That's great! I haven't had a chance to run the Strat with Ivan's flash much yet, but I had that same experience with my 1300. Enjoy

I've heard stories about the Barons License Plate Bracket doing that to an otherwise docile bike. Do they put any type of disclaimer on their packaging? :unsure:
